WE MADE IT TO 150! And we’re taking a break! Sterling and Kortney take time to discuss the latest Fast and Furious movie, F9, and how it rates compared to the others in the franchise thus far. There aren’t spoilers if you’ve seen the trailers. Later, Sterling talks about the people who talk to him at work about aliens. The big topic is the big events coming up, one of which you can visit here: bit.ly/WatsonPerry2021. Lastly, Kortney quizzes Sterling with Floriduh or Floridon’t
It’s a joyous holiday season as an ailing Sterling celebrates his official first Father’s Day and Juneteenth by hanging out at Virtuous Con and the fascinating panels he attended. A quick trip into a black hole storm (very brief due to a tech-heavy read) followed by the confirmation of UAPs (or as we know them, UFOs, but also a heavy read) and the return of Sheboygan News and a very large octopus. Sterling takes Kortney for another round of “Florida or Floridon’t” and then attempts to fry her mind with the concept of a tachyonic antitelephone. Lastly, tell us what you call the objects Sterling describes since we all have different names for them.
DISCLAIMER: This, unfortunately, is another episode with audio issues particularly in the latter half of the show. We apologize for the inconvenience if you have trouble hearing/understanding.
In this episode, Sterling learned that he’s not as young as he used to be and the importance of stretching. Another Word Watch article about obscure punctuation marks, #askindoob listener mail, and BHF: AJ Smitherman. There’s a huge plug for our good friend Portia and her recent interviews with Bloomberg and CNN regarding remote work post-pandemic lockdowns.
Sterling and Kortney are here to buck the trend and end the cliches… or at least discuss them and if they truly are cliches that need to retire. Sterling also rehashes ideas for ice cream, and cereal, and why they need to join forces someday. And lastly a big thank you for your continued support in listening, donating, and sharing this podcast. More ways to help: indoob.com and patreon.com/indoob. Coming soon: tsterlingwatson.com
Sterling plays a new game with Kortney called “Florida or Floridon’t” and attempts to freak her out with the legendary footballfish. A question about birthdays; and a cautionary tale and a PSA regarding Zoom calls that apparently still need to be heard in the year 2021.
Possibly the first in a series as Sterling reflects on parenthood thus far, a brief overview of his experiences with a 5-year-old and what that has to do with Invader Zim.
The majority of this episode is an in-depth review of both Mortal Kombat (2021) and Godzilla vs Kong. However, it begins with Sterling’s recap of the Oscars and what predictions he got wrong, and it ends with the new words brought to you by the pandemic. You’re gonna want to read along because Sterling can’t speak German, Dutch, Lithuanian, etc… 15 Useful Pandemic Words

Newton, Sheboygan scooters are coming, and the added benefit of wearing masks everywhere.
